  • Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club Update #5 - Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club
    8 weeks full time The last few weeks has all been focussed on assembling the core skeleton transom stem knees and stations After screwing down the keel with 4 brass screws permanently to the stock we could prepare for a dry fit The hog was dry fitted to the keel and holes drilled through both Locater dowels were glued into the keel to ensure an easy fit when gluing the hog to the keel We decided to create a rebate for the centreboard casing by widening the slot in the hog relative to the slot in the keel This will result in a single glue line between centreboard casing and keel and also a better seating for the centreboard casing We achieved precision cut for rebate using a Festool circular saw In order to allow for the bracing of the stations to the underside of the mezzanine floor above and to improve the lighting for the GoPro camera we moved the lights in the shed Mark spent 2 nights engineering a custom bracket of plywood metal and cotton wool while the rest of us fixed battens This should also allow the Go Pro camera take better photos of the build with less direct light on the boat and also facilitated the secure fixing of the moulds We used a transparent plastic tube water level filled with dyed water attached to either end of the horse to give us a very accurate longitudinal level The vertical supports were plumbed using a conventional metre long builder s level We had been discussing the mounting of the transom finally deciding to fit it directly to the keel with a rebate formed via a shortening of the hog relative to the keel by the thickness of the transom The transom was battened in place
